Menemen, is one of the most famous dishes which associated with Turkey. I can not imagine a house that menemen would never been cooked in Turkey. Not to mention that it is a practical, healthy and savior meal. Although menemen is usually a meal served for breakfast, you can also serve it for dinner on days when you cannot find time to cook.
Menemen is also a controversial dish. Even today people in Turkey debate if you can add onion while cooking menemen or not. I think you should put onions in your menemen. But for those who don’t like onions, I will give you the recipe without onions. You can still add it if you want.
Menemen – Eggs Cooked With Tomato Sauce
- 2 tablespoons of butter
- 3 green peppers after removing the stem and seeds, finely chopped
- 3 medium tomatoes
- 1/2 teaspoon of salt
- 3 eggs
- Optional: cheddar cheese onion
- Put the butter and peppers in the pan and fry until the peppers turn color. (If you want to add onions to your menemen, first sauté the onions with butter until they are soft and then add your peppers.)
- Add the peeled and chopped tomatoes on it.
- Wait until the tomatoes are cooked thoroughly by closing the lid of the pan over low heat.
- If the tomatoes are not very juicy and stick to the pan, you can add a little boiling water. Usually, this will not be necessary.
- After the tomatoes are cooked, you can break the eggs into the pan. You can whisk the eggs in a separate bowl and add them, or you can break them into the pan and mix them in the pan.
- Add salt and any spices and wait until the eggs are cooked.
- If you want to add cheddar cheese, you can add the cheeses at this stage. Serve your menemen hot.
